As nearly every patient today receives care from multiple providers, interoperable electronic health records that can share data are critical for truly integrated care. This need is particularly evident within the military health community. Approximately 40 percent of America's veterans receive their health care outside of VA facilities, and up to 70 percent of active duty personnel health care is provided outside of the U.S. Department of Defense's health system.
